Center Manager Interview

Anonymous Employee in Columbia, SC
Accepted Offer
Negative Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Advance America (Columbia, SC) in January 2017.

Interview

It was ridiculous! The interviewer talked more about herself than anything else and any question that I asked about the job was responded to as if I were asking for the secret recipe to Bush Beans! She would respond with answers like, "we will give that information to the candidate we choose." EVEN THE SIMPLIST QUESTION! I stopped asking anything!

Interview Questions

  • Every question began or ended with the phrase, "what does it look like?" Must be a company buzz phrase! After I got hired I heard others use it. I only worked there 6 months due to the horrible culture of the company. They absolutely do not practice the respect they preach. Do yourself a favor and don't even bother.   Answer Question

    I applied in-person. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Advance America.

    Interview

    I was asked very straight forward questions. It was a very little fun interview and made me really comfortable to be myself in the interview process. After the interview the next day or so I received a call to complete my drug screening. After the results came back I was offered a position with the company.

    Interview

    Too fast hired in one day felt like they just needed someone quick. Interviewer abrupt and to the point. very outspoken made me go on a second inteview with another manager the next day then instructed me to take a drug test on the way called and told me to report to work Monday mind you the interview was on thursday looking back they needed someone "quick" as now I see they cannot keep people as they have a very stressful atmosphere, make you work all day alone with 80 customers with high volumes of cash they need someone to take a look at what the is going on

    I applied in-person. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Advance America (Cleveland, OH) in April 2014.

    Interview

    You do need to call after you submit a resume and stop into a store, otherwise your application can get missed. The interview process is very quick and painless You do have a personal interview, drug test and a background check. The job is not hard when the store is staffed, Unfortunately the company never seems to have adequate staffing,

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Advance America (Denton, TX) in October 2010.

    Interview

    I was first called on the phone and given about a fifteen minute phone interview with a center manager, she asked general questions. They said I would then need to wait to get an in person interview with the area manager. That took a couple of days to schedule and once I had it I was escorted to the back of the center and the area manager asked me more questions. He kind of went over the ones I was already asked on the phone, that went ok and then I was told I would need to wait for the Divisional Director of Operations. That took the longest, it was about a week before I had that interview. He went over what felt like the same questions but I can't really remember. then it was a drug test and a couple more days wait and then I was called on the phone by the DDO to be told I had the job. I felt that the people at the office I interviewed at were too loud and not professional. One woman was walking around without her shoes on and they did not seem to care about the customers. The area manager was cocky and liked to talk about himself too much. The DDO seemed ok. I would recommend the interviewee to listen to the person speaking and not really talk a lot as they aren't really interested in small talk. They want to make sure you will be a good fit for the company in that you will be strong and not easily run over. I recommend dressing up, I saw people interviewing in really shabby clothing. One important question they ask is "Where do you see yourself in 5 years?" You should be able to say something along the lines of "I see myself staying here, working for this company, hopefully moving up"

    Negotiation

    I asked for $15.00 per hour, I was offered $13.50 right off and I accepted it. When I signed my paperwork I was actually given $13.80. They didn't seem willing to really negotiate, or maybe it was that I wasn't really trying.
